The Cornelius Vanderbilt II House: Fifth Avenue’s Largest Mansion Webinar

February 9 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM


The Cornelius Vanderbilt II mansion, once stood on New York’s Fifth Avenue between 57th Street. & 58th Street where Bergdorf-Goodman stands today. Considered the largest mansion on Fifth Avenue with 100 rooms, this house was the New York City home used by the Cornelius Vanderbilt II family when not at their Newport, Rhode Island summer cottage, “The Breakers”.

From its first incarnation that took up only the northwest corner of Fifth Avenue & 57th Street, to a massive expansion befitting the power and wealth of the patriarch of the Vanderbilt family, many rare interior views will be seen along with floor plans of the smaller and then enlarged version. Sadly demolished in the mid 1920s, it must have taken the breath away of everyone, rich and poor who saw it.
